Each year our Ashton Gardens Designers create a new Tulip Festival design, which makes each year’s Festival wonderfully unique. Because of this, the tulip bulbs from this year’s Festival will be dug up from the gardens to make room for next year’s tulip bulbs.
After the tulip bulbs are removed from the flower beds, they are available for purchase from the Ashton Gardens. The Tulip Bulb Sale begins at the end of May, but specific information will be posted HERE once it's available. You can use them to plant in your own garden, or they make great gifts for friends who would love to plant a piece of the Tulip Festival in their own yards!
Yes! The applicable cost of your venue admission can be applied toward the purchase of a membership. Visit the guest services desk or call 801-768-2300 to learn more.
Visitors are welcome to take snapshots (informal, non-posed photographs) for private use. Snapshots may be taken of the plants, gardens, or members of their group during their visit to Thanksgiving Point.
Photography Sessions require the purchase of a Thanksgiving Point Photo Pass, available for purchase at the Ashton Gardens Visitor Center. A photography session is an event where a photographer/videographer (either amateur or professional using any device including mobile phones) takes a series of photographs of a posed subject(s) using any part of Thanksgiving Point property as a backdrop.
Our full Photo Policy with more information can be found HERE.
Unfortunately we don't allow pets at the Tulip Festival. Visit the Ashton Gardens on Wednesdays starting June 2021 for Dog Walk Wednesdays!
The Tulip Festival features over 300,000 tulip bulbs of several different varieties. The “Tulip Fashion Show” in the Fragrance Garden showcases and labels the many colors and kinds of tulips that are featured throughout all of the Gardens during the Festival. Be on special look-out for the “tulipa Thanksgiving Point” at the 2021 Tulip Festival! This special tulip was created especially for Thanksgiving Point’s 25th anniversary in 2020.
